I am planning on spending a vacation in Kenya so am actually interested if there is any Chalbi desert tour that would also include Lake Turkana visit and I would like if this Chalba desert tour takes no less than 7 days. This would be my first stay at one desert so would appreciate much if someone give me some details about what to bring with myself on this Chalbi desert tour.

The most important think is to bring a lot of water though Chalbi desert is not like Sahara but still it is unbelievable hot there and sleeping bag of course and I don’t know whatever else you think you need. I went on Chalbi desert tour last year and it was amazing if you ask me but I still won’t recommend going near Ethiopian or Sudan border for the occasional ethnic tensions. So maybe the best Chalbi tour that would fit you is the one that takes 8 days and starts from Nairobi and the first night I have spent in camp near Ewaso Nyiro River. The next day of this Chalbi Desert tour takes you to Samburu where you will be located in a National Park and I loved this site for there you may see elephants, lions, zebras and giraffes. Than you go toward Marsabit where you set up a camp near to a volcanic crater where you spent the night and the next day you are back again at the Chalbi Desert. Anyway the fifth day I think you are about to reach Lake Turkana and you may finally get relaxed bathing in the lake –I enjoyed it. And than you have one day left to visit a forested area near the Lake Turkana and the last day you should be driving back up to Nairobi.
